__ V · _ ' - . ' ' ' · ' ' New Davis Cup Czar Optimistic i Moch, C.HI., TU«., r.b. 11, i»J* -INDEPENDENT--P.age C-I By DAVE LEWIS. Siwrls EdiUr Following .one of his last few public appearances in .the Southland recently before going into spring training' with his world champion Milwaukee Braves later this month, Fred Haney was relaxing over-a drunk when te began recalling some of the highlights of his playing days. . He finally got around to his base-stealing, a department in which he was one of the game's top masters. For a fellow who led the Pacific Coast' League in stolen bases four times and one year swiped the'impressive total of 71, Fred insists that if he had to do it all over again he wouldn t try to steal half that many. The Milwaukee skipper, now 60, says that in looking back "I'm afraid I was guilty of showboating and satisfying my ego in stealing most of those bases "There are certain situa tions wherein a stolen base helps a team. More times than not,.-it simply helps the indi vidual. /"There's a little story_ be hind how and why I swipe those 71 bags in 1934. Earlie in the 1930s I was playing thir base for Los Angeles and steal ing about 50 a season. "In. the spring.' of 1931' had a kidney removed. I misse the early part o£ the schedul and when I rejoined the Angel I decided not to knock mysol out ... just steal when a bas was needed. "I stole only 29 that year but in my own mind I felt was just as valuable to th team as when I was c °P pin ! go _ However, the management didn't think so. They said I was slowing down and I was-released. That hurt me deeply. Perry T. Jones, new captain of the U.S. Davis Cup team, declared Monday he intends to "give it the best try I know how and not with the idea that we're going over there just to go through the motions and lose, but to win." . ' . · /' Jones replaces Bill Talbert who guided U.S. Davis Cup team fortunes from 1954 through 1957. The U.S. won the cup in 1954 but lost It to Australia in each: of the other four challenge rounds. ' · The .68-year-old Southern California tennis leader, appointed .to'the new. post Sun- 'day by USLTA president; '! Victor. Denny in New; York, /. declared: ·..·' "· · .-·-,- ·. ' .' ' "I felt 'Very optimistic'-with. o_ur. prospects/arid I;am. i going . to do' everything I. can." ,-.

And that -Is/ what our committee has been commissioned to -find : out." . '.:'-. He said he expected Denny' to appoint a "representative" the country to study the open tournament matter.''. . . Jones said that ."after I put . the effort .I'm going to put into .it, there should 'be' a'de-' cision reached this' year." In' announcing, that Jones would assume the. task of re-. storing this.'country's Davis,; Cup prestige, Denny- said in. ; New,York that "no reflection. was intended,on the job done.

I'mean, when a steal wiU help the team win. the 10." Although he has encouraged the Braves to^run more .since he has taken over, as manager, he is not having them go hog wild on the base paths. In the first place, Fred points out, not every ballplayer Js qualified by nature to run fast enough to consistently steal · bases .... and not every fast man has the knack to do it. Rather than stealing, Fred has emphasized taking the extra base with the Braves. "Don't be satisfied with moving up one base but look ahead two bases," is his philosophy. He points cut that this is what made the Chicago White Sox so dangerous last season, Hancy oven has been having-his pitchers practice sliding. "For years I have soon ball frames lost because a pitcher Many a simple out can be avoided and many rallies ftept ahve if a pitcher would slide into second and third onco hei Rets on either didn't know how to slide or refused to.hit the dirt, base," Fred points out "But most pitchers are too dignified to slide/' he-growls. Getting back to his base stealing after transgressing momentarily Fred revealed he recorded his biggest base-stealing spree during a Sunday doubleheader in Sacramento when he pilfered nine bases in the two games. * * im REVEALED THAT IT WAS a Sacramento pitcher by the name of Ed Bryan who gave him the most trouble . . . despite the fact the guy never threw to first base to drive a runner back or try to pick him olf. "The guy really got me down," Fred recalls. "I^never stole I was afraid to taV a good lead 'because I in cold _________ - ,,. . - legs in shape." He.'s been wintering in Roxboro, N, C. ' On the contract signing front, the Detroit Tigers corraled out- lielder Al Kaline and pitcher Paul Foytack Monday. 1 . - * ' » » . » ' KALINE; "anxious to. be the best ball player in the. league," signed for an . estimated §20,- 000. The AL's youngest batting king when he hit .340 in 1955 Kaline led the Tigers last year with a .295 mark, 23 homers and 90 RBIs. Foytack, troubled -by a sore arm in mid-season, ..finished with a 14-11 mark and a 3.14 ERA. Rookie outfielder Larry Osborn also signed with the Tigers,- bringing 20 players under contract YAXKKES -- "Rookie of the star" Tony KolH* (.237) 8lRiied. but Yankee brass did not confirm a New York newspaper report -that pltchlnc -star Whltry Ford acreed to a. 150.000 pact. -- - I .

The secret of base stealing is in the balance and the pivot, Honey declares. "Speed alono Is not enough, although a runner must be swift. You must observe the mannerisms · of pitchers and catchers iuid get the jump on the pitcher In particular." Fred first gained-fame as a base-steaier while with the Angels, of course, and he credits this .partly to the help of his teammate, Arnold (Jigger) Statz, one of the most popular men ever to play in Southern California. "We worked beautifully together," Fred reminisced. Haney was leadoff man and Statz batted second. "Jigger helped my base stealing and I, in turn, helped his drag and punch hits. We knew each, other's styles and this knowledge made "the hit and run easy for_us. "A runner with a reputation for stealing helps the batter behind him considerably by forcing the pitcher to throw one or two waste balls. Than the pitcher must come in with something good to hit." Will he have the Braves stealing this season? "Only when the situation- calls, for it," he said, but you, can be certain we'll be running more than we ever have as w.e go for that extra base!" 2 PINTS OF BLOOD?
